    Movement of the field

    Find the movement of the field
    F(x,y) = (x^2-y)i + (x-y^2)j

    arrond the curve \alpha which is the boundary of the region in 1 quedrant understood by coordinated axes and the circle x^2+y^2=16

    My solution

    \int_0^{\frac{ \pi}{2}} (-64cos^2tsint +16sen^2t+16cos^2t-64sen^2tcost)dt = 8 \pi

    Correct ?

    I figured again and got:

    8 \pi \frac{128}{3}

    Correct ?

    For this one you would want to use Greens' theorem:

    \iint_D 1-(-1)dA=2 \iint_D dA=2 \frac{1}{4}\pi (4)^2=8\pi
